Fiat Powertrain Technologies (FPT) Unveils 845 Horsepower Cursor 16


Recommended Posts

Press Release / May 8, 2014

Italian truckmaker Iveco’s engine supplier, FPT, has launched the new Cursor 16.

“We’re pleased to be able to reveal the engine to the public for the first time. Every now and then there is a massive leap in engine development and performance; FPT Industrial has achieved this with the Cursor 16,” said FPT Industrial’s Sales Vice President Massimo Rubatto.

The new Cursor 16 offers best in class power and torque density, rated and max power as well as service intervals, crafted in a compact design to make it one of the smallest engines in its range.

The Cursor 16 delivers 18-litre performance in a 13-litre package. It utilizes proven technology and represents the top level of the successful Cursor Series engine family, renowned for its reliability and flexibility.

The 15.9-litre, six-cylinder in-line engine will be available in two versions: single stage turbo and dual stage turbo.

The new engine is designed with the performance and durability to exceed the needs of heavy hauling applications, with the second stage version offering a fuel economy advantage in high load factor operations.

The Euro-6 (EPA2010) emissions engine, with four valves per cylinder, delivers up to 764 horsepower (570 kW) with maximum torque of 2,449 lb-ft (3,320 Nm) at 1,500 rpm in its single stage version, and up to 845 horsepower (630 kW) with maximum torque of 2,581 lb-ft (3,500 Nm) at 1,400 rpm in its double stage version.

The Cursor 16 is the first FPT engine to adopt a Compacted Graphite Iron (CGI) cylinder head, a high performance material providing high thermal and mechanical resistance.

To be produced in FPT’s Bourbon Lancy plant in France, the Cursor 16 engine has been co-developed by FPT Industrial’s Research and Development teams in Arbon, Switzerland, and Turin, Italy.

Combustion is optimized by the use of steel pistons, creating high peak cylinder pressure and, as a result, high power density and low Particulate Matter (PM) output. Combustion optimization is furthered with a FPT-developed double re-entrant combustion bowl, two different turbulent vortexes within the bowl allow for the accurate control of fuel and air mix to maximize performance and minimize emissions, while ensuring no residual fuel is left on the cylinder lining.

The engine features a third generation ultra-high pressure common rail fuel injection system, of up to 2,200 bar, allowing a precise control of the injection process.

The Cursor 16’s ball bearing turbocharger with wastegate further increases engine efficiency.

FPT’s patented High Efficiency Selective Catalytic Reduction (HI-eSCR) technology is also utilized. Developed in-house to comply with Euro-6 emission regulations, the system reduces Nitrogen Oxide (NOx) emissions by more than 95%. With no PM after-treatment system and the high power delivery potential without a mandatory air handling system, the HI-eSCR system increases reliability and lowers maintenance cost, while reducing operating costs over the entire product lifecycle. The compact system allows for the optimization of space and minimizes the weight impact due to integrated components.

In addition to its power and efficiency improvements, noise and vibration reduction has been achieved by the use of a rear geartrain timing system.
